Xbox360 Semi sorta mod


Tech Monkey
Ok well its not 100% done as the controllers don't match, but here was the very first part:

The next step was to change the color of the box:

The last step is to dip dye the white parts of the controllers. Some more pics of the box as it is:

Looks good! What all did you do? Paint the case, changed the power LED to blue, colored the tray & power button metallic gray...? Will look sweet after those controllers match. :)


Tech Monkey
yea Its actually a metallic silver but I would like to get the entire ROL blue (preferably buying preinstalled LEDs on a new RF board) Soldering those tiny LEDs suck. I would also like to do the controller LEDs to match though other than that I think my mod is done unless I pick up some blue LED talismoon fans (not exactly the cheapest things or easiest things to get)


Tech Monkey
Never done LED mods on the 360, but I'll bet those look great! I saw the sparkle in the silver in the first pic... immediately saw the metal flake. Nearly impossible to get a picture that shows that stuff properly! ;) Always looks better in person! Get yourself a cheap tripod to take pictures from, especially the low light/no strobe ones, you will like the results.

Looks good, M8! ;)

Thanks man, first thing I am getting is a set of Talismoon Legacy Wispermax fans with Nitro switch and blue leds. After that I will get the ROL done (gonna buy predone, pretty cheap and less pain on me, SMD LEDs are annoying to solder or else I would do it)

This does have an update but first I have to find my camera :p

EDIT: Found it.






This controller was white but after a failed dip dye attempt I just got a black shell and sprayed a bit of silver, the other white one got a coat of black and some light silver so they are similar but its main silver piece was a dull grey so it got a coat of silver but the one on the the controller in the pic is from a pro so it was already shiny.
